SummaryFive species of Heth Cobb are redescribed from South American diplopods. Heth spinosum Artigas, 1929 from Rhinocricus nattereri varians from the island of São Sebastiao, Brazil, is most similar to H. duvidosum Artigas, 1929, H. perarmatum Dollfus, 1952, H. bifidispiculum Adamson, 1982 and H. mauriesi Adamson, 1982 but is distinguished from these species by details of cephalic cuticular ornamentation in the female and the strongly hooked spicule in the male.

A revision of the genusCarnoya Gilson, 1898 (Nematoda: Rhigonematidae) with descriptions of four new species
Four new species of Carnoya are described and an emended diagnosis of the genus and a key to the known species is given. Expand
Three new species of Heth Cobb, 1898 (Ransomnematoidea: Hethidae) from spiroboloid millipedes from Mexico
The present descriptions increase the number of Heth species recorded from Mexico from three to six, and set these species apart from the Caribbean HETH species, most South American, and those previously described from Mexico. Expand
First United States Records of the Rhigonematid Genera Heth and Ruizia (Nematoda: Rhigonematida) from the Introduced Millipede, Anadenobolus monilicornis (Diplopoda: Rhinocricidae) in Key Largo, Florida, U.S.A
The rich rhigonematid fauna in the Caribbean region, which has been documented on islands such as Cuba, Guadeloupe, and Puerto Rico, indicates the potential for future additional introductions of rhinocricidae to North America. Expand
